The 2017 Midwest Aspiring Physicians (MAP) Conference

On Saturday, October 7th, 2017, AMSA is hosting the largest pre-medical conference on campus, the Midwest Aspiring Physicians (MAP) Conference. The goal of the conference is to expose pre-medical students to “what it takes to get into medical school” and “what it’s like to be a medical student / physician.” We do this by inviting medical school admissions representatives, medical students, and physician keynote speakers.

Conveniently located in the Health Sciences Learning Center of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, MAP welcomes pre-medical students from universities across the Midwest to gain insight into the array of possible medical careers by making connections with esteemed physicians, admissions staff, medical students, and fellow pre-medical students. It is an event of both education and inspiration for those aspiring towards a career in medicine. 

Keynote Speakers:

Andre Pinesett, MD, MPH, The Pre-med Productivity Expert, Resident Anesthesiologist at UC-San Diego

Ruston Sanchez, MD, Resident at UW Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Adam Rindfleisch, MD, Mphil, Family Medicine & Director of UW Integrative Health Fellowship Program

Brendon Nacewicz, MD, PhD, Adult Psychiatry

Neil Vallabh, National AMSA Vice President for Internal Affairs, 3rd year medical student at Northeast Ohio Medical University

Coffee, bagels, donuts, and fruit will be served for breakfast. Registration includes either pad thai from a local food stand or a Subway meal box for lunch. Additional snacks and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.

This is a great opportunity to network with practicing physicians and admissions staff as well as make connections with other pre-med and current medical students.  With that in mind, it is important to dress professionally, as you would for an interview. There is limited space available so register early.
